Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2010

Overall Rating

I attended SJU for undergrad and grad school and I always said that I couldn't stand 97% of the Hawk population, but that the 3% that I did like were phenomenal. Sort of an inside joke. I had a great experience obtaining both degrees! The Hawk spirit is an acquired taste and some people took it WAY too far. But it all came from a great place, which I enjoyed.
